My husband and I live in rural France, not much going on. Husband decided to take the dogs out for their walk earlier. As soon as the door closed, I heard a bang. He came belting back in, face pure white. He asked if I heard a bang and said yes. It was a gunshot, the chasse (hunters) were in the field next to us chasing a sanglier (wild boar), which was headed straight for our land. He was terrified and refused to take the dogs out, he said the worst of it was they would all be half drunk cos they start on the Pastis at 8 in the morning. It was hilarious, never seen him so scared, told him to put in his hi-viz jacket and he would be fine - won't tell you his comments.
He did the right thing not much more dangerous than a wounded boar.They like to get up close and personal with their razor sharp tusks especially with dogs that try and mix it .
Seed catalogues are responsible for more unfulfilled fantasies than the web and playboy combined . (after Michael Perry)
I would have been out there making the boar head for the hunters if I had the guts to do it - but seriously I would really have run like your hubby, I know the boar's reputation. My friends dog was hurt by one recently. Wild boar sausages anyone?
